2023 Prix de l’Abbaye Trends

Run at Longchamp on the same day as the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, the Prix de l’Abbaye is a Group One sprint run over a distance of 5f and run at Longchamp racecourse.

The race always attracts the best sprinters from across Europe and often all over the world, but in recent years the English-based yards have done well – winning 15 of the last 21 renewals.

Here at Geegeez we take a look back at past winners and highlights the key trends to take into the 2023 renewal, this year run on Sunday 1st October.
